Legislative update — veto session

Here’s what I know of for today at the Capitol:

_Gambling – State Rep. Bob Rita is having a subject matter hearing on the gambling expansion issue at 1:30 p.m. (or immediately after session ends) in Room 114 of the Capitol. This will be a hearing of the House Executive Committee and will be used to help determine what direction gambling discussions take.


_Retiree health care – The Legislature’s Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability meets at 8:30 a.m. in Room 400 of the Capitol to discuss the latest with CMS on its transition to the new Medicare Advantage plan. Linda Brookhart of the State Universities Annuitants Association will be on hand with many others interested in the hearing. I’m glad to provide you some background or connect you with Linda there.


_Guns/pensions – No updates necessarily expected today with session canceled for tomorrow. But if that changes on either issue, I will let you know.
